Subject: Night of 1000 Architects
Hosted by Edmund Bacon, a man who a) blinks way too much and b), yes, is really Kevin Bacon's Dad (look it up if you don't believe me), this fascinating film tells of how Philadelphia was redeveloped thanks to Bacon and many other architects. Each of them have their own say, and then introduce another one, which is a terribly amusing way to do things. sort of a night of 1000 stars approach. As well, they outline what they did on this HUGE mural, each of them drawing little representations of their work. It's really an amazing way to do things, and kept me interested. Unfortunately, this film IS an hour, and could really have been cut down. But still what a film this was.
